The Return of the Prince

Ubisoft confirms new Prince of Persia in fiscal '08 is based on Ubisoft's third quarter financials that reveal plans for a new installment in the Prince of Persia series in their fiscal 2008-2009 year, which begins in April. No other details are provided, but there are some purported early screenshots and speculation on Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars where the game is referred to as Prince of Persia 4/0/Ghosts of the Past, said to be currently in development at Ubisoft Montreal.

Don't judge games by demos. If you do, you'll miss out.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

It's a pity that everyone seems to judge Warrior Within based on the very limited demo. The full game was not 99% combat and featured much better level design than SoT. It did a much better job of integrating the combat into the platforming aspects of the game and was far less formulaic and predictable than SoT's "combat area (with respawning enemies), platforming area, combat area, platforming area" level design. For all intents and purposes, WW is the best game of the bunch and the only real weakness is the angsty transformation of the protagonist and the occasional rock music. However, these are relatively trivial.

I totally agree. The music didn't bother me, though. I personally have a thing for rockmusic in games and/or movies. It gives that extra kick to the action, that extra adrenaline rush. I personally enjoyed the Transformers movie especially when that rockmusic kicks in and the transformers go on a rampage on the highway!

Oh but anyway (I was getting off-topic)... Warrior Within is indeed the best of the series and I REALLY enjoyed Two Thrones aswell!!

I played the demo for the followup, and it scarred me so badly (they completely missed the point, it was obvious Ubisoft big-wig-idiots got their hands on the creative direction) that I never touched the sequels after. Really a pity.

In AC you've experienced right about everything the game has to offer after the first mission. I played that game for the story / cutscenes, which were ok.

Prince of Persia AND all its sequals (imo) I played for those marvelous acrobatic moves and not-over-the-top-complicated-but-interesting puzzles. Apart from that, even the story of every PoP was more than ok.

Sands of Time was one of my all-time favorite games. I played the demo for the followup, and it scarred me so badly (they completely missed the point, it was obvious Ubisoft big-wig-idiots got their hands on the creative direction) that I never touched the sequels after. Really a pity.

Assassin's Creed is a whole different ballgame that all of the above though. It's a flawed masterpiece in the truest sense.

That's what I actually like about platformers. Figuring out how to get from point A to point B and then possessing the skill necessary to pull it off. From what I've heard, AC's platforming is completely streamlined and automated, requiring minimal planning or skill from the player. If this is indeed true, I'll take traditional platforming any day.

Agreed. The illusion of open-endedness (since no game really is) is really overrated. I'll take a new PoP over another boring Assassin's Creed anyday of the week.

I kind of feel like playing PoP now.

Charlie Murphy: I don't know what he was crying about. He knew where he got that shirt and it certainly wasn't in the men's department.

SoT and old scroller PoP were good. I don't like the sequels after SoT. Ugh!

I played Sands of Time (got it free with some sort of hardware) but after playing Assassin's Creed, I don't look forward to the 'you must run this corridor this way or die over and over and over'.

What? A giant video game publisher is looking to continue developing their highly successful series at the same time a major Hollywood producer is working on a film based on the same property?

A video game, based on a movie that's based on a video game. Complete madness.

Nice! I always liked the PoP games. Simply fantastic gameplay, I think!
